Researchers at the Brigham Young University are squeezing all the healthy compounds out of oranges to find the right mixture responsible for their age-old health benefits.
The popular stocking stuffer is known for its vitamin C and blood-protecting antioxidants, but researchers wanted to learn why a whole orange is better for you than its components when taken separately.
`There`s something about an orange that`s better than taking a vitamin C capsule, and that`s really what we`re trying to figure out,` said Tory Parker of the BYU.
